I live in Kentucky and have just seen a dentist for my check up, X-rays and cleaning where it cost me without having insurance a total of $225.00 I know before now I have not been to a dentist in a few years. So I was surprised of this cost.
Is this the going cost for basic dental care?? I now need to have a small filling done but I told the dentist I would need to look for a dental insurance plan first. Now the cost of the filling would have been $110.00. I am not sure if this dentist is over priced or if I should be getting a dental plan to help me out here.
